What is the Auto-renewal/Evergreen program?

When you ordered your subscription online, you opted into our Evergreen auto-renewal program. Automatic renewals help nonprofit Mother Jones and the environment by saving the paper and postage that would be used for a conventional series of renewal notices. And we pass the savings on to you, giving you a discounted renewal rate of just $18 per year—57 percent off the newsstand price! (There is additional postage for print-subscription deliveries outside the United States: $10 per year in Canada and $12 per year in other countries.) With automatic renewal, you'll get uninterrupted service, and you won't have multiple renewal notices cluttering your mailbox. You'll receive a renewal reminder once a year. If we don't hear from you, we'll simply charge your credit card or bill you for the new subscription term.

If you wish to be removed from the auto-renewal program or need to provide us with updated credit card information, please contact us. (top)
